Love Stories


Some of you may know that I’m a Journalism major, and I started college as an English major. I’m one of those people who went into college knowing exactly what I wanted to do, because it’s something I’ve known for as long as I can remember. I love everything that has to do with books, writing, and most of all, love stories, which is what brought me into the wedding blog industry (and hopefully wedding magazines someday as well).

My passion for writing and books makes this one of my all-time favorite wedding themes: literature. Whether it’s a theme surrounding a favorite book in particular, or books in general, I love how these weddings create an atmosphere of intrigue, warmth, and great stories–just like your favorite book does every time you open it.

Every couple has a story, and I love this beautiful way of celebrating that! What’s your love story? :)

  1. Love the book centerpieces. That would be a great idea for any kind of party, not just a wedding reception.

    Loooove the card catalog idea! So cute! I have decided once I have a house and a room designated as a den/library I am totally going to start collecting old books. I just love how unique and worn each one looks. :)
